This intensive Course Workshop (held in English with some Japanese) will explore the potential of recycled materials and found objects for creating unique artworks.
The aim of this workshop is to use recycled materials and found objects as inspiration to explore design. Students will investigate the synergies between engineering and creativity, while exploring the possibilities of reconstructing everyday objects and materials to build extraordinary art pieces. The workshop will culminate in a collaborative exhibition that will also include experimentations with light and sound to enhance the overall installation.
Students will engage in an exploratory drafting and construction process that investigates 3-D thinking, spatial concepts and development. Students will have the opportunity to explore a variety of forms using recycled materials and found objects. Forms will include mixed-media collage, sculpture, model making, installation and wearable art or costume. Importantly, this course workshop will also introduce students to the use of lighting to enhance the sensibility and dramatic intention of designs.
Components will include:
Introduction to the basic elements and principles of design
Introduction to ecological-design.
Exploration of a variety of materials and techniques for making 3-D work.
Demonstrating successful integration of practical and theoretical research into design development.
Investigating how image, text, narrative and sound can be used as inspiration for creating dynamic designs.
Developing insight into the use of scale models as a basis for conceiving spatial designs.
Demonstrating the use of light and photography to enhance the emotive sensibility of design.
Hand-outs will be supplied.
